Autumn Equinox Haiku String 2020

The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the AHS Autumn Equinox Haiku String.

We will be holding the String during the day of the Southern Hemisphere Autumn Equinox, which occurs in Australia this year on Friday, 20th March, 2020. The String will remain open for contributions until Sunday 22nd March to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part.

Please enter your haiku in the comments section below this post.

Haiku String – Instructions

AHS invites you to share with us your original, previously unpublished haiku or senryu on the theme of Relationships.  We invite you to explore a multiplicity of ideas in the String without necessarily using the word ‘relationship’.

The haiku will be linked by the subject of Relationships. It is not necessary for each haiku to relate to the one before it.

  1. Please contribute up to three of your best previously unpublished haiku or senryu.
  2. Haiku should be posted in the comment box at the end of the post.
  3. Each poem posted must be original work by the poet making the post. Please include your name below each haiku as you wish it to appear.

Posting your work in the AHS Autumn Equinox String 2020 assumes the following:

Copyright of each haiku remains with the author. We request nonexclusive permission to publish your work on AHS website and to republish it in any future online collections on the AHS website.

how quickly the sun

  1. Good evening. I am pleased to submit
    three Haiku for the AHS. Thank you.

    a smile
    eyes meet
    we don’t need words

    winter ends
    spring friendship blossoms
    on and on

    blood brothers
    till death do us part
    take care my friend


  2. first meeting
    our grandson and
    his shadow

    morning walk together

    my Aunt’s gown
    its warmth enfolds me
    as she did

  3. sharp suit, drink in hand
    a glance her way
    he makes his move

    Virginia Bird

    wood smoke at dusk
    the embers pulse glow
    with our bliss

    Virginia Bird

    your icy words
    shrink my heart
    to a clenched fist
